Are You Seeking To Modify Your Divorce Agreement?
Months and years after a divorce agreement has become final, it may still be necessary to modify the terms of the divorce agreement. If you are experiencing a change in your family or finances, you may want to explore the possibility of revising the terms of your divorce. At Geary & Geary, LLP, we can work to obtain the appropriate modifications for your new situation in a timely and cost-efficient manner.

At Geary & Geary, LLP, in downtown Lowell, our knowledgeable attorneys have helped clients modify divorce agreements for more than five decades. We have the skills and knowledge needed to persuade a court that a modification is necessary to reflect a change in our clients’ situation. We can also help prevent modifications from being made if your ex-spouse is attempting to obtain an unwarranted modification.
When Should I Make A Change?
Changes in your life such as illness, loss of a job or other economic factors make it necessary to request that court modifies your agreement or court order. Some post-divorce modifications are fairly routine, such as an increase or decrease to child support because of a change in one parent’s salary. Other modifications, such as when one parent wishes to move with the children, can be emotionally charged, highly contested battles.
We can help with a variety of revisions to your divorce agreement, which include, but are not limited to:
- Child support modifications
- Spousal support (alimony) modifications
- Other financial disputes
- Child visitation revisions
- Child custody changes
